      This was really good. I used a merlot because that was what we had on hand, whole wheat spaghetti, and also substituted basil for tarragon as another reviewer has said. My shrimp were already cooked, although they took on a sort of purple-ish color and didn't look like the pictures, probably because of the wine we used. Even so I thought it was really delicious!
